Go Solo or Hire a Professional?
Wedding cake, wedding venue, wedding dress. Add wedding before any word and watch the price skyrocket.
Everyone has a budget to stick to when it comes to wedding planning. All those little things add up, and the next thing you know you are thousands of dollars over budget. Oh no!
For the sake of keeping things within budget, you might consider doing your own makeup. This is a completely viable option and there are plenty of tutorials out there to help. But for the sake of a less stressful wedding day, you might want to consider hiring a professional MUA to get the job done for you and your bridal party. It’s a small price to pay so that you can spend more time enjoying your day.
Narrowing Down Wedding Makeup Options
When choosing a wedding makeup look, there are a few things to consider.
At the end of the day, it’s all about what you want! Whether you opt for a professional or go solo, here are a few of our favourite uncomplicated wedding looks that you can wear on your wedding day.
Just enough bold, feminine energy; a glam look will make you feel like the star of the evening. Keep the brows natural, with a golden/copper touch around the eyes.
If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, go for a dramatic cat eye.
Be completely you. A natural look is great for an all-day affair, ensuring you won’t have to touch up as much throughout the day. Even if the look wears off into the evening, it will hardly be noticeable by your guests.
A nude lip and subtle eyeshadow are key to a romantic wedding day look. Highlight the dimples of the cheeks for a more sunkissed vibe.
Layer on the mascara with thick and full eyelashes and a little smokey eye. Keep this bold look balanced out with a neutral lip colour and you're good to go. For more longevity, don’t forget to apply a Flawless Finish Face Primer.
5. Smoky Eye
We love, love, LOVE a smokey eye. If done just right, it makes your whole face glow through the contrast of darker eye tones. Play around with tones that bring out your natural eye colour. Apply a bit of Pink Flesh Concealer to keep caking at bay throughout the day.
6. Red Lip
The ever classic red lip. This timeless look is a wedding makeup staple. Apply some Lip Prep Primer before putting on a red hue that best accentuates your skin tone.
Having a wedding that’s a bit more thematic? A vintage look may be just right for you. Start with a neutral, natural base. Go a bit light on the bronzer. From there you go as over the top as you’d like with vintage elements (e.g. winged eyeliner, bright lip tones, etc.).
